Here in the United States, Television is starting up with new shows, or new episodes of old shows. While I have to wait until January 2009 for new Battlestar, there are some new sci-fi shows coming out. Sarah Conner Chronicles debuted season two last night (missed it, have to find it online - hooray for living in 2008!) and FRINGE comes on tonight.

Anyone else looking to spend way too much time as a couch potato, looking for plot points for future use?

Any non-sci-fi shows count too...

I've not watched TV regularly for a long time now. I catch Scrubs when I can, but otherwise I just wait until a season is over and buy the box set. Currently gathering funding for:

Enterprise
24
Lost
Stargate SG-1

And through the online movie rental method, I've found a few good shows just by clicking and seeing what I get. The most recent that has really caught my interest is:

Torchwood
Extras

I think that about covers it.

I'm much like Rob with regards to watching TV, I rarely watch it when it is on (living in Germany with horribly dubbed TV doesn't help), but there are several shows I like, and some like a lot (besides the obvious Star Trek).

CSI - Las Vegas is my favourite, but I also enjoy the other ones
NCIS - 'detectives', science and a lot of humour, not to mention that Mark Hammond has aged very well ;).
West Wing
Cold Case
X-files (I still rewatch the DVDs from time to time :D)

That is the main stuff at the moment. :mrgreen:

I hate watching TV on TV anymore. I've found my affinity for commercials has left me. I'm with the wait til it's on DVD crowd. And, what's better is I can watch it whenever I want! That's how I watched Enterprise. I only got to see the first episode on broadcast TV. My schedule didn't allow much else so when I found it on DVD on netflix I watched the whole thing.

Currently I'm waiting on the 2nd season of Torchwood and the 4th season of Dr. Who. Nothing else really grabs me these days.

I buy DVDs when I can but I love my DVR. The few shows that I do watch on TV.
Heroes
Star Trek (any series) (Total Fan Girl)
Bones
House
Dr. Who
and a few others are normally one when I'm not home.

It is hard enough for me to wait for the week to go by just to watch the next episode. Not sure I could miss a whole season just to wait to buy the box set.

Looking at my DVR, I have 21 different shows adding up to just under 200 hours :). That being said, I mostly watch what you guys said, plus Stargate Atlantis and minus Heroes and 24.

I'm a season behind on House, Battlestar Galacta, Stargate Atlantis, Doctor Who, & I never did watch Torchwood. I'm done with LOST... got sick of it last season before they got off the island. If you're going to get off a deserted Island why would you want to go back to it?

I have to agree about NCIS. I've been watching for about a month and i think its possibly the best show that dosen't involve warp drive.

Top Gear is great as well (they featured Patrick Stewart once so it falls under the category above).
